My Assault.

In 2012 I was raped. Until a few months ago, I had only ever told three people. I wrote the draft of a blog post about it a few years ago, but couldn't bring myself to publish it. I think part of the reason it was so hard for me to talk about was because... Continue Reading →

Like Needing Glasses

My life seven years ago was very different from what it is now. For starters, of course, I was still closeted. At least one thing has remained true for me in all that time, though... I am a Grey's Anatomy loyalist. I love that show. And always, always will! Over the years, Grey's has done... Continue Reading →

Invasive Love.

Multiple people in my life have committed and attempted suicide. Students, friends, family. At the age of ten I even saw someone I loved try to take their own life right in front of me. I cried and begged them not to, calling for help as I watched a bloody butcher knife cut the length... Continue Reading →

Out of the Closet, Into the Gym.

I'll be honest. For a moment, I was feeling a little cocky today. I checked out my blog statistics and realized that my eight total blog posts had received over 10,000 unique views from 11 different countries. I felt really proud that this little site with only a handful of posts ended up having such... Continue Reading →

The Beginning of the End.

Windsor” Supreme Court case. I hope you were able to spend some time this week watching the celebrations of those most closely impacted by the rulings in the Prop 8 and DOMA cases. I...

I don't necessarily believe that things happen for a reason – as if they were predestined – but I do believe everything that happens has a lesson that can be learned from it. I believe...

Family Values

  Give this election a face. Give it mine.     This election is about family. Mine.   What Candice (my sister) went through with Dev (her late husband who passed away from cancer a few years ago) was heartbreaking to say the least. When I think about some of my saddest memories from that... Continue Reading →

Media Matters

Someone in my life recently asked me when I was going to stop posting about gay stuff all the time. Needless to say, he's still processing how he feels about me coming out. The answer, though, is that I don't think I will. Not as long as there is still something to say. I've come... Continue Reading →

Born this way?

One line from the recently-viral Kony 2012 video has really stuck with me in the last few days, "Where you live should not determine whether you live." It's a beautiful awareness project and a humble reminder that some of the things that are completely outside of our control can have a profound impact on our quality of... Continue Reading →
